Catherine Cunningham has worked in marketing & communication’s strategy consulting successfully for over a decade – delivering business development concepts, communications designs, interactive experiences, visual exhibitions & multimedia productions to world-class clients, dedicated to speeding and to scaling integrated bottom line solutions to the most intractable global challenges. Many of her recent projects have led to the production of purpose-driven films for thought leaders in business and government that resonate with the UN Global Goals and have premiered in significant world forums.
For 20 years, Catherine has travelled, written, photographed, and filmed in 67 countries; interviewed 100’s of thought leaders, and co-produced over a dozen film projects to promote our positive clean energy, new climate future. Since 2014, she has run Nature’s Reflection Photography, recently creating with Fine Print Imaging a collection of limited edition prints focused on human-nature wellness. Our aim is to enhance Human Spaces with nature-inspired fine art and to create greater health and wellness in the places we live, work, play, and go to be healed. Catherine also promotes healthy personal and planetary living through her films and other educational resources. Her book, “Naturally Intelligent by Design” will be available in late autumn 2018.
On the educational front, Catherine has taught undergraduate and masters courses in corporate communications at Arizona State University; global sustainability at Chapman University, as well, biology, ecology, botany, environmental science at Denver State College and Front Range Colleges.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
